COLUMBUS, Ohio -- When it comes to children's hospitals, Columbus is home to one of the best in the country. That's according to the U.S. News & World Report's Best Children's Hospitals Honor Roll.

Nationwide Children's Hospital came in at number seven in this year's report.

The 2019-20 Honor Roll designation marks the sixth consecutive year NCH has received this recognition.

Nationwide Children's U.S. News & World Report's 2019-20 Best Children's Hospitals specialty rankings include:

“Recognition such as this is a testament to the compassion and hard work of our dedicated staff,” said Steve Allen, MD, Nationwide Children’s CEO. “These rankings underscore Nationwide Children’s continued commitment of providing the highest quality of pediatric care to patients and families across the globe.”

“The top 10 pediatric centers on this year’s Best Children’s Hospitals Honor Roll deliver outstanding care across a range of specialties and deserve to be nationally recognized,” said Ben Harder, Chief of Health Analysis at U.S. News. “According to our analysis, these honor roll hospitals provide state-of-the-art medical expertise to children with rare or complex conditions. Their rankings reflect U.S. News’s assessment of their commitment to providing high-quality, compassionate care to young patients and their families day in and day out.”

The annual rankings recognize the top 50 pediatric facilities across the U.S. in 10 pediatric specialties. Hospitals received points for being ranked in a specialty, and higher-ranking hospitals receive more points. The Best Children's Hospitals Honor Roll recognizes the 10 hospitals that received the most points overall.
